Program Coordinator

As the newest team member at CJJR, Natasha manages all in-person events at the Center, including the planning and coordination of Certificate Programs, Public Information Officer Learning Collaborative convenings, Juvenile Justice Leadership Network conferences, and annual Janet Reno Forums. 

Natasha’s interest in criminal justice reform work began during her undergraduate years at the University of California, Berkeley where she interned with UnCommon Law, a criminal justice reform nonprofit that advocates for parole board hearing representation and incarcerated people’s rights. Natasha’s experience with UnCommon Law inspired her to transition her studies to the carceral state, punishment theory, and the intersection of gender-based violence and women’s incarceration. She also worked at GRIP Training Institute (GRIP), another criminal justice reform nonprofit that provides a year-long accountability and healing program for people incarcerated in California state prisons to help prepare them for reentry. During Natasha’s time at GRIP she cultivated her skills in stakeholder engagement, event management, and research.

Natasha’s experiences in the criminal justice field, as well as her time working with the YWCA to lobby in support of women’s health, with Autistic Adults NYC on government program research for autistic adults in New York State, and in the corporate and private legal fields have prepared her for the important work connecting career professionals across different disciplines to discuss juvenile justice reform.
